​​​​​​​Russian Black Sea Fleet Warship Fired Warning Shots Near British Destroyer

Tensions are heating up between NATO and Russia in the Black Sea Region as a Russian patrol ship fired warning shots near HMS Defender, a British Royal Navy destroyer, for violating Russia’s maritime borders, according to a Russian state-owned news agency RIA, citing the Russian Ministry of Defence.

During the incident, Russia fired “warning shots” from a patrol boat and dropped bombs from an attack aircraft to deter the British Navy destroyer. Here’s a timeline of what happened Wednesday afternoon:

At 1152 local time, HMS Defender sailed across “the Russian border and entered the territorial sea at Cape Fiolent for three kilometers,” RIA said. 

Around 1206 and 1208, the Russian patrol ship fired warning shots. The Defender failed to heed radio warnings after it entered Russia’s territorial waters off Crimea. 

After nine minutes, a Sukhoi Su-24 attack aircraft dropped four bombs in waters near the British vessel. The Defender then reversed course after the bombing and exited the area. 

Reuters noted the Su-24 dropped “four high explosive fragmentation bombs as a warning in the British destroyer’s path.” 

The incident area occurred south of Russia’s naval base in Sevastopol.

Russian Senator Sergei Tsekov told RIA the warship’s movements were a “flagrant violation of international norms.”

After the incident, Russia summoned British officials in Moscow to explain what happened, Interfax reported. It’s critical to note that the UK and its NATO allies don’t recognize Crimea as Russian territory after Moscow annexed Ukraine in 2014.

UK’s Ministry of Defence Press Office denies “warning shots were fired at Defender.” They said, “we believe the Russians were undertaking a gunnery exercise in the Black Sea and provided the maritime community with prior warning of their activity.”

If, in fact, Russia used live ammunition to deter a NATO vessel, it would be the first time since the Cold War.

Russia has frequently blamed NATO countries for destabilizing the Black Sea. Despite NATO members Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey all have territorial claims to the body of water.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a “US intelligence-gathering aircraft” was in the region “possibly to gauge the nature of the Russian response to the UK’s violation of the Russian territorial waters.”

      Probably because Merkle and Macron were going to invite Putin to the NATO EU summit. They should do it anyways. This was obviously intended to convince both of them that Putin is too anti-western to be part of anything western.

      That would be my guess.

      The fact that the British ship actually entered Russia’s territorial waters means it was a provocation. Furthermore, American and British ships have previously been warned to stay away from this area, yet again violated territorial waters, this also confirms the intrusion was a provocation. Nor was this a mistake, modern vessels have extremely accurate navigation technology, especially naval vessels. A modern navy ship can determine it position literally within millimeters.
      The provocation was not just British, no doubt the Americans knew full well there was going to be one. It was a test to see the Russian reaction, to see what they could get away with, to gather intelligence, to get back at the Russians for the war games they conducted off the Hawaiian coast, but mostly importantly, to simply provoke Russia.
      I want to know just who specifically is ordering NATO nation ships to provoke. Most of Europe does not want bad relations with Russia, only the US and England keep acting antagonistically even though other NATO nations have asked us to stop the unnecessary and pointless belligerence.
      It all adds up to one inescapable fact, the US (that is TPTB, not the people) is itching for a war with Russia. I can speculate a few reasons why. Firstly, their are entities that want the two largely white and Christian countries to destroy each other. Secondly, Russia can and has on occasion checked Israeli ambitions for greater hegemony in the Mid-East by supporting Syria (which incidentally has the only the secular gov’t in the Arab world and both protects its Christian communities and has Christians serving in its gov’t). Thirdly, Russia refuses to submit to the idea of US global hegemony and Russia won’t be bullied. And fourth, Russia does not allow its banks to fully integrate with the American or international banking systems. There are probably more reasons.
      US and the Brits know if they keep provoking and keep rubbing Russia’s nose in it, that sooner or later an incident will occur, giving the US and England an excuse to commit an act of war.
      Lying is integral to State and public policy. Many will never know the truth, never know about American perfidy. The State wants the ability to throw away lots of lives with little resistance.

      EU countries are ganging up on US tech companies, and so is the US government, however, this ganging up on tech companies is not to protect users from being exploited by tech companies, it is to increase the number of people and companies that exploit users and their data, and are demanding access to users data is the motive behind these moves by both the EU and US. They are essentially claiming that the tech companies have a monopoply on our data, and want more people to gain access to our data. For example, Google has announced that they will ban the use of cookies, in a move to protect users. Many websites are mad as hell about that because the cookies give them access to users data. On that issue, I stand with the tech companies!

      The United States developed the use of war drones. The United States defense contractors, techology contractors, and members of the organized crime ring InfraGard are so shit for brains that they cannot think five minutes ahead.

      They develope technology, ranging from nuclear weapons, to drones, to biological weapons, to chemical weapons, to mind reading technology, to hacking tools, and then the stupid mother fucking jack asses are shocked and dismayed when other countries or individuals that they have used these evil weapons
      on develop the same technology and use it against them.

      When in the hell are fucking morons ever going to wake up and learn your lesson? My guess is that you will probably end up sleep walking in a zombie state for the rest of your lives and never learn, because to you, it is just a game. You are not in the Middle East and you weren’t for Obama’s terrorist Tuesdays either when he would choose someone to assassinate by drone based on nothing other than a photograph of the victim. No history or of the individual was included. Obviously, now any country would be capable of sending drones over on U.S. soil to assassinate all of congress if they wanted to, and to be perfectly honest, I highly doubt that many American’s would feel any sense of loss over it if any country did, after the way that this government has pissed all over America, the constitution, and its citizens. “Bow down before the ones you serve! You’re going to get what you deserve! Head like a hole, black like your soul, I’d rather die than give you control! ” – NIN

      Who knows what really took place?

      It isn’t like we can trust any government anywhere to give us accurate information about anything.

      Yours are called assault weapons. Theirs are called warnings.

      Off Hawaii, was just a drill. Off Sevastopol, is a flagrant violation.

      • Bill says:

        DS – Your point is understood. However, we do know at least two things, the Russians actually stayed in international waters off Hawaii, the Brits went in and violated Russia’s territorial waters.

        • Anonymous says:

          Actually, we know three things.

          If someone in western officialdom is moving their lips, it’s a 99.6391% probability that their lying. It’s a .3609% probability that they simply don’t know what they are talking about.

          Damn those sneaky Russians for putting their territory so close to our bases and (always moving) troop concentrations.

      Unfortunately for the outrageously insoucient British Isle (now overrun with dispossessed refugees from Africa/Mid East) the Russian military would make light work of the Island in 2.5 minutes push come to shove. That’s what you call reckless endangerment by the British criminal gubbmint. Not – so – Great Britain couldn’t fight it’s way out of a wet paper bag. Likewise the United States. If the citizenry of both countries collectively don’t pull their heads out of their 5 gallon buckets of shit, get some fresh air, and put a stop to these psychopaths blatantly antagonizing extremely capable foreign militaries, the American and British people will get to enjoy the spectacle of their kids and grandkids reduced into radioactive fly-ash. Boris nutjobjohnson needs to be surrounded by a few thousand British patriots still in their right minds and beaten into the bloody shit stain that he is and left as a permanent shit stain on London Bridge. The Russians should immediately cut off Europe’s gas and oil supply – crippling the entire EU in minutes. Let them know it is a direct result of Great Shitstain and it’s outrageous provocation. The Russians should sink the next HMSN Great Shitstain Rust Bucket that comes along through the Russian front yard and let the British population know that if that isn’t enough – we’ll sink the entire shitstain nation along with all the apathetic shitstains residing on Shitlandia. The dimwits sailing on this ridiculous rust bucket need to mutiny, demand Blow Jobs head on a platter for recklessly provoking a far superior military power.
